The S. Margareta church is the centre of Mantana, a village that is surrounded by lushly green meadows.
Mantana, once an independent municipality, makes part of the market town of San Lorenzo di Sebato since 1928. Mantana has got about 280 inhabitants and is surrounded by lushly green meadows, away from the road to the Valgardena valley. The village is by the way the last German-speaking village, before the Ladin-speaking begins.
“Mantan“, this is how the locality first appears in documents of the 11th century, while from 1800 the village of “Monthan“ is mentioned. In the heart of the village, there is a Gothic parish church with a mighty tower, displaying the year 1492. Its high altar is a piece of art of Josef Renzler. A little distance away from the village, there is the Unterguggenberger farm with its little chapel, constructed by the farmer Josef Kronbichler in 1805. Johann Renzles, a painter of San Lorenzo di Sebato, has decorated this sacred building with two frescoes.
As regards the leisure time offer in Mantana, there are three full automatic bowling lanes in the Hotel Alpenrose, as well as artificial turf fields at the Hotel Lanerhof. A keep-fit-trail keeps you moving and healthy in your holidays, while in winter you can enjoy ice skating at the Roßbühel in Mantana.
Our tip: Mantana and Sares are connected by a walking trail. Visit the Maria Sares pilgrimage church in a great walk.
